states. ohio and florida. the latest nbc news "wall street journal" m.arist poll shows president obama holding on a six-point lead among likely voters in the buckeye state. meanwhile in florida an creamily tight race there two points separating the candidates with the president ahead in the sunshine states 49 to 47%. so much of this race, of course, depends on these two states. ohio and florida. for some insight i want to bring in our nbc news deputy political editor. let's start with ohio good friend. if mitt romney can't win in ohio what would his path to 270, what would his path to victory have to look like. >> makes it very narrow for mitt romney. if president obama wins ohio he's at 261 electoral votes based on our battleground map. if mitt romney gets virginia and florida he's stuck to 248. new hampshire where he owns a home but the president probably a finger on the scale now we're at 261-261 and we've been talking all along about the midwest and importance of ohio, wisconsin and iowa and the necessity for mitt romney to win two of those three. look at that right there. you got
in the swing states like in ohio, in florida -- like ohio now, 50% for obama, 46%, romney. you can do that with all of them. and then there's a margin of error. if you have a three or four-point margin of error, you'll say, obama's in the lead but he's within the three-point margin of error, you really haven't told me anything. >> we've told you it's a close race. >> all right. let's talk about the poll of polls. when you factor -- there are different factors, there are different methodologies that go into poll of polls, right? but people -- the people who do the polling don't consider a margin of error but there are different margins of error that go into the poll of polls. what? >> i think the polls of polls or the various websites that track and aggregate the polls are useful. it's a place to look at a lot of polls at once. but those numbers are mixing good polls and bad polls, really large, substantial polls with really small minor polls. it's hard to get much other than a finger in the wind of how things might be blowing at the moment. i think it all -- it's all a part of the sen
their travel plans. president barack obama campaigns in florida tomorrow. that's away from the storm. and mitt romney has canceled rallies in virginia. he'll be in ohio instead. i want you to take a look at this young lady. this is amanda rubio, the 12-year-old daughter of florida senator marco rubio. she'll spend the night in a miami hospital after a golf cart accident today. she has a head injury and is in fair condition. her dad, the senator, was campaigning with mitt romney when he got the news and headed immediately to miami. >>> we have a lot more planned for you this saturday night. here's what else we're working on. ridiculous rhetoric. >> explain to me why retard is inappropriate. >> from ann coulter to donald trump, the partisan election blather explodes. we take a stand. the poll, so many of them, who do they call? my cell phone or land line, should we believe them? we have of questions for the pollster who knows it all. >>> here comes sandy, the massive hurricane barreling up the east coast heading straight towards the biggest city, new york, philadelphia, boston and d.c. all that,
the weekend to go back. for obama, victory in florida is a prize. for romney, it is a necessity. debates about whether romney can carry ohio or other midwestern battleground states become moot without a win here, experts say. the "new york times" focuses on pennsylvania and a story a -- and shift, romney a purchase pennsylvania with a new urgency. first there was quiet, then came the super pacs, not the candidate is on his way. in a striking last-minute shift, the romney campaign has decided to invest its most precious resource, the candidate's time in a serious way to win pennsylvania. mr. romney's appearance here on sunday could be a crafty political move to seriously undercut president obama, or could be a sign of desperation. either way is visit represents the biggest jolt yet in a state that has been recently largely ignored. in recent days, polls showing -obama's narrowing said. again, this morning we are talking about the non- battleground states. we will go to california, on our line for republicans, helen, you are on. caller: good morning. i am a first-time caller. please do not cut m

, and hurricane sandy is forcing a temporary suspension of this presidential campaign. president obama canceled campaigning in florida and wisconsin and flew back to washington to coordinate the federal hurricane response. mitt romney also canceled events in wisconsin, iowa, and florida. neither campaign wants to appear insensitive, so many americans in harm's way. but the weather delay doesn't help romney. >> if it benefits anybody, it probably benefits the president because he gets to look presidential because he is the president. he is in charge of the government and in charge of that response. >> romney's campaign is thinking of sending him to new jersey later this week, where he could meet with storm victims and with governor chris christie, a romney ally. >>> in just over a week you will be asked to decide who should be president. and you may have already cast your vote in the comfort of your own home. but did your vote count? nbc bay area's marianne favro is here in the newsroom with a look at a simple mistake people make that could get their mail-in ballot kicked out. >> reporter: the m
in ohio, scheduled to attend three campaign dates today in florida. president obama will be on official business today only touring storm damage areas along the eastern seaboard. for now he is leaving the campaigning to former president clinton and other high-profile supporters. >>> the latest cbs news/new york times poll taken before the storm shows that the president does have a narrow 48- 47% lead among likely voters. he had a 3-point lead in the same poll a month ago. right now the election seems to be on hold. >> it's recovery that's the focus right now. time is 4:35. lawrence is in the weather center. >> the center of sand ski sandy is in pennsylvania, showers beginning to taper off. we have some rain headed in our direction. some dense fog in spots this morning overlooking the city of san francisco. you can see the orange out there for the giants, the parade of champions today. temperatures right now running mainly in the 50s outside so fairly mild start to the day and by the afternoon, guess what we have coming our way, a cold front is on approach. that will bring with it a chan
will win florida and the presidency. caller: in 2008, president obama won the latino vote in 34 daby a large margin, 15 points. and the latino vote in florida is 14% of the electorate. that is a huge number to try to -- for a republican to now try to regrab back from the democrats. what is your thought on the latino vote? >> we doll very well, better than anywhere else in the country. i think we will do much better than 2008. i think we have a chance to win it. i am not programming that. but i think we have a chance. i don't think any community in florida has been hurt more than the hispanic community, in terms of unemployment and the loss of the ability to create new jobs and businesses. you are starting to see that percolate. you are starting to see that reflect in the support we are getting. i am very excited about how well we are going to do among hispanics. >> greta: what state are nu? >> pennsylvania. we came popen -- we came to pennsylvania. 200 people, it was fantastic. i was earlier in the day in new hampshire. i will be in ohio tomorrow. i have been to nevada multiteletimes
polling. i think he will carry new hampshire, ohio, iowa and of course, florida, colrado and virginia. then i think he is going to carry pennsylvania. i think he has a good shot at carrying wisconsin and an outside chance at mish ban and minnesota. but obama made a crucial mistake. he figured he would do ohio would be his fire wall. ohio and iowa. and if he did a lot of stuff there and a lot of negatives on romney, they couldn't get by that. but what romney's done, they have gone over the fire wall and gone into pennsylvania, where obama's never been on the air. and in the last week, the last week of the election, obama is spenning about $2 million in pennsylvania and romney and his allies are spending $11 million. pennsylvania is going to go for romney. he is 3 points ahead now. those 20 electoral votes will put him over the top, long before we call the 18 in ohio. >> greta: all right. let me ask but ohio. all the polls are neck and neck so they are tied. so tell me why those polls are not to be public believed and why listening to you, we should think you are right in calling ohio?
, pero cautelosos . >> estaremos peleando en ohio, en la fflorida >> la florida sigue siendo una parada obligada, ayer mitt romney visitó la universidad y michelle obama estuvo también, el mensaje es claro, n osolamente motivar a los electores, sino que estos también motiven a amigos . >> la campaña de mitt romney dice que entra en la recta final con confianza . >> compitiendo en estados que consideran que votan por el presidente . >> reconocen que el estado del sol es importante, esta imagen bipartidista donde recorre las calles con el gobernador pudo haber ayudado al primer mandatario, muchos republicanos critican que el gobernador felicite a el presidente de los estados unidos barack obama por el desastre. >> sin embargo no pensamos que el ciclon cambie la ña >> analistas dicen que son pocos los indecisos, se trata de quién mueva los simpatizantes a las urnas . >> vfamos a ver el mapa electoral para ver los cuatro estados indecisos, el presidente de los estados unidos barack obama lleva según las encuesta ventaja en los estados en pantalla, que nos deja colorado, ohio, virgini
you everything you need to know about where his campaign is looking. he'll be in virginia, florida, new hampshire, iowa, colorado, and wisconsin over the next 96 hours. mitt romney will be in many of those same states over the next four days, although he's hitting pennsylvania and bypassing florida. president obama back on the trail yesterday after a three-daybreak to oversee the storm recovery. he rallied a crowd of about 10,000 people in colorado making a not-so-subtle jab at his opponent's tendency to change his mind. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you know me. you may not agree with every decision i make. you may be frustrated at the pace of change. i always remind people that when we did the auto bailout, only 10% of the country approved of it. including, by the way, folks in michigan and ohio. but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i'm willing to make tough decisions even when they're not politically convenient. >> and mitt romney returned to his pre-hurricane attack mode in virginia yesterday. there, mr. romney blasted the presid
in colorado. governor romney is ahead by a little over a point in florida and just barely beating obama in virginia. so if these polls prove right, the president edges out in the swing states and is re-elected? >> exactly. and i would look at iowa and wisconsin. romney has to win one of those states. if he wins ohio, then he has a shot. if he can't get ohio, he still has a plausible path if he can get wisconsin. what has to be really troubling to the romney campaign is we're seeing more and more polling in those states and they are not moving in his direction and the president's turnout particularly in ohio has been very strong, very robust. so i think those two states in particular are going to prove and looking at florida and virginia, i still think the president has a very strong chance to win in florida and my home state of virginia as well. i think they could also end up in the blue column. >> well, they have to let everybody vote but i'll get to that later on in the program. alicia, the economic argument where you talked about the jobs numbers and that's what the romney people hav
was in florida today. let's take a look. five stops down there. >> what president obama is saying, look at me, i'm always willing to work with republicans, i work with governor christie in new jersey on sandy. i tried to work with him on the budget. i tried to work with him on health care. and what they say is we'll work with the democrats if you put us in charge. now, that's the message, and you just have to decide whether you think that's a good message. >> there's bill out there. getting all the attention, but it's great. >> there is no better surrogate for anybody than bill clinton. he's very popular in florida. i'll tell what you else, bloomberg, he might as well also be the mayor of broward county. there are so many new yorkers who are dual residents. >> they still read "the new york post" because they think it's liberal. >> they still read "the new york post." florida has 22% independents, people who listen to bloomberg and clinton, and that fema thing i think is also going to hurt romney. >> author think shift used to be, when she would delair the victory, it was over. >> florida may be
years ago, they switched. the fact is, the paper in florida this morning did the same thing, pro-obama, it switched. in ohio, we clearly have gained ground. i think across the country, we have. and if you look at the internals of the washington post poll, i doubt that obama will carry virginia. don't know if it's the economy or the benghazi. where we had this strange story over the weekend that the secretary of defense apparently refuse to obey the president's order, if the president is telling the truth and he instructed his assistants to get aid to benghazi, we're now being told that the secretary of defense canceled that. i think these type of things drag down the president. you notice that he's cancelling his trips over the hurricane. he didn't cancel his trips over benghazi and you have to wonder, between benghazi, the price of gasoline and unemployment, just how much the burden the president is going to carry into this last week. >> he does have a burden. as you point, with a lot of those stories coming out. at the same time, he's built up a lead in some of these battleground sta
excited in florida while team obama is trying to finish with a dramatic push. that big push was supposed to include a joint appearance with president clinton, but sandy rained on that parade. president obama is now back squarely in washington to deal with this storm leechl leaaving former president with the stage all to himself. >> as the president said, governor, you were in bain capital. if i brought a deal to you and said i have a great idea for a business with jobs like crazy, and you said where's your budget? i'd say, see me on that in a year or two, you'd run me out of our office. how can you expect us to vote for you for president. you won't give us the budget when you say it's the biggest problem in the country. vote for the man with the plan. vote for barack obama. >> let's bring in joe lockhart, former white house press secretary under clinton and also a cnbc contributor. the president is in a tough spot right now trying to run a country, manage a natural disaster while also running for re-election. what are the benefits and the pitfalls of trying to strike such a balance, espe
are showing president obama gaining, a new, very slight edge but gaining nonetheless and that's in florida. as of today the president is up by one point there, that's according to a new poll out today. romney was up as recently as this weekend. and a week ago republicans had a significant advantage in mail in ballots. but when early voting started last week there were lines around the block. >> we cut the typical advantage the republicans have by about 85% going into saturday the start of early vote. over 48 hours, we blew the doors off of early voting in 48 hours and took the advantage that republicans had and eliminated it. six days of early voting gone. >> jennifer: that is such great news. and as of today here is where early voting stands in florida. democrats make up 43% of all early voters so far. republicans make up 41%. big improve. now remember, early voting started on saturday, obviously today is wednesday, so they have had four full days of early voting. and today there was a leaked memo which shows how concerned the republicaned are about all of this. a loca

report." wifeless than two weeks to go, president obama and mitt romney hit the campaign trail in florida, ohio, wisconsin, colorado, and virginia. polls continue to show the race in a dead heat nationally, and too close to call, in no fewer than ten swing states but the obama campaign and its media allies are questioning whether mitt romney's recent momentum is real. joining the panel his week, dan henning gary, james freeman, dorothy rabinowitz and kim strassel. kim, tell us how real the romney surge is. >> look, paul, i know two weeks is one side increasing its advantage in both the national polls and the swing state polls. that's romney. we have seen money flowing into that side. that's romney. we have seen him improve his performance in independents and womens. you can call it what you want and the media contends it isn't momentum but i bet the president's campaign is wishing they that that momentum. >> to that point, yes, the obama campaign wishes it had some of that momentum because i tell you what really going on. the president is flatlining. >> i think he hit a ceiling for two re
. hurricane sandy is washing out candidates plans for their entire work. >> reporter: president barack obama scrapped a morning campaign stop in florida to get back to washington as the weather deteriorated. >> the election will take care of itself next week. right now, our number one priority is to make sure we're saving lives and that our search and rescue teams will be in place. >> the president 'led tuesday's stops in colorado and wisconsin. he told campaign workers in orlando he's counting on them to help get out and vote. i am not going to be able to campaign quite as much over the next couple of days, make sure as folks get hit by the storm, everybody is doing what they are supposed to do. >> the storm is sure to impact early voting along the east coast, and for state that's may help decide the election, they are in the path of this storm. hurricane sandy altered romney's plan and canceled events in virginia sunday. >> let's today, when we get home, put in our prayers the people who are in the east coast in the wake of this big storm that's coming. let's not forget the fellow american
to several million people could lose power by midnight. president obama had to campaign the stops in florida and ohio to deal with the emergency. he spoke after a briefing in the white house situation room. transportation room is tied up for a long time. friday, the significant impact for a lot of people in addition to flooding will be getting power back up. we anticipate there are a lot of trees down, a lot of water. >> by the shore especially. and the record levels in the eastern shores, delaware and new jersey. president obama is campaign -- canceling the campaign spot tomorrow. the storm is hitting its peak right now in washington. live this afternoon, scott mcfarland, ktvu news. >> we'll be following hurricane sandy throughout the day on ktvu. more on the website and full coverage tonight starting on our 5:00 news. >>> a hearing is continuing for two teenagers while burglarizing their home earlier this month. 18-year-old cody nakozia and christy birdsal are charged with murder and special circumstance of murder during robbery. prosecutors say october 17th, they went to the home of barba
, 137-39. this continues throughout the states. you see ohio, florida, colorado. obama's lead is massive. obama built the largest grassroots organization that politics saw in '08 and after he won he continued to build it. this can make a difference of two points and in a close race like this it can make all the difference in '08. it gave obama some already. that's not the situation in this case. people that have been to the ground offices say the obama offices are all about obamament the romney offices are rnc offices and not always all about romney. that leads a conservative like joe scarborough to worry about what's happening that the obama offices are building this unparalleled turnout machine and the great irony that scarborough writes for the romney camp is their candidate drirch by data and numbers his entire life is relying on the most unpredi unpredictable force of all, human emotion, to pull him over the top. i don't understand why romney and the gop have allowed this to happen? >> if it were just about having offices, obama would be in a clear lead in states like florida he's n
in tampa, florida. and then it was president obama touring coastal new jersey and comforting victims of hurricane sandy, while mitt romney was holding what he called a big victory rally outside miami. and while the romney campaign made sure to have their most telegenic staffers say on camera today that they were going to avoid any partisan commentary today out of respect for the storm victims, they said they were going to avoid any partisan attacks on president obama on this very serious day, they said they would do that, but they apparently really did not mean it, because at a rally in wisconsin today, they had the republican party chairman talking about how america needs to fire barack obama, and saying that the battle to defeat president obama is a battle for this country's freedom. at a rally with mitt romney in florida today, they had that state's former republican governor, jeb bush, talking about president obama as a failure, his failure to bring this country together. at the same event, we had a republican state congressman tell parents that they should threaten to take hallo
, the campaign thaw is beginning. mitt romney is in florida, for three events today and president obama will return to the trail in nevada tomorrow. and in the last hour, governor romney has this to say about the country coming together. >> we come together at times like this and we want to make sure that they have a speedy and quick recovery from their financial and in many cases personal loss. >> people coming together is what's also going to happen, i believe, on november 7th, and -- i know we have differing viewpoints with regards to the campaigns. up until that point but we get to vote on november 6th and on november 6th you'll see us describe our representative visions for the country. >> a tight race nationally but president obama maintaining a lead in swing states including florida, virginia and in ohio obama leads romney 50 to 45% among likely voters. he also has a huge advantage when it comes to early voters. among those who have already cast their ballots in the state, 60% of ohioans favor the president while only 34% voted for romney. meanwhile, team romney is pumping cash i
ads, it opens up the door obviously for the obama campaign to hit back hard. in the state of florida it actually gets worse. romney desperately needs to win the state of florida and he is running a spanish language ad meant to stoke the fears of cuban-americans. the ad tries to connect president obama to venezuelan president hugo chavez and fidel castro. "the miami herald" reports the romney campaign would not furnish the ad despite repeated requests. in other words, the ad is so outrageous, the romney campaign tried to slip it under the radar. obviously the strategy is backfiring. let's turn to annette taddeo, member of the miami-dade democratic party. annette, great to have you with us tonight. i keep saying the bread basket to victory for president obama is going to be south florida. turnout is to important. but now this spanish language ad that's out, what is this doing to stroke the fears and the emotions of people down in that portion of the state? >> well, it just -- i think mitt romney is finally just getting absolutely desperate. it is him learning a little bit of -- him rea
president obama at 49% and mitt romney at 45%. in florida, reuters has president obama at 48% and mitt romney at 46%. in michigan, a ppp poll has president obama at 52% and mitt romney at 46%. and in colorado, a ppp poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 46%. in new hampshire, a new england college poll has president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 44%. tonight, nate silver the "new york times" blog forecasts that president obama has an 81% of winning re-election and that he will win 304 electoral college votes and mitt romney will within 234. and the great thing about next week is i will no longer have to say ppp poll. i'm done with that poll. these polls are tight. these polls, you know, i refuse to use the language the poll shows president obama winning 50, because every one of these polls is within the margin of error. every one of them. so they are really showing something that could be a tie, could be tight. for incumbents this is not considered particularly strong polling. when the incumbent is at 48 and the other guy is at 45, that's considered a risky spot for incu
in some states trying to get the message for him. bill clinton is continues with the florida event. president obama probably made the right call to come back. it wouldn't look good if he continued with that event down in florida if people are pounded by rain. all attention will be on this storm for a while, especially on the east coast, so he has a chance to get out there and be in front of the cam ras. we don't want to talk aboutfall politics in a natural disaster, but it will give him a chance to respond and look presidential. >> mitt romney had to cancel three events in virginia. the latest poll out of the state. he's closing the gap, although the president still has a four-point lead. how do you proceed if you're mitt romney? he doesn't have an official role, so is whatever he does open to criticism, or is it -- do you even morph through a political lens? where does mitt romney play through all of this. >> he can campaign in states not adversely affected by the storm. he can stay in ohio. i don't think there was any downside to spend more time in ohio and put in homilies in the
